I bet those numbers have gone down slightly.

Subhead: South Korean Automakers See Biggest Drop in Inventory
"In analysis of a hefty sample of more than 60 percent of the nation’s vehicle inventory, Edmunds.com found that most results were as expected – Honda and Toyota suffered most from a lack of vehicle inventory due to the quake; ditto for subcompact and compact vehicles. What is surprising is that South Korean automaker Hyundai has been so hard hit by inventory depletion as a result of strong demand, in part due to real and perceived lack of availability of Japanese favorites but also due to the fact that the automaker continues to be on a roll."

"Sony Corp. Thursday joined a lengthening list of big-name Japanese manufacturers like Honda Motor Co. and Toyota Motor Corp. in saying Thailand's extreme flooding has derailed production, closing down either plants or key parts suppliers in recent days."

It will take a while to get supply levels back up to par, though. We should see a gradual recovery.
